How do you learn to do a trick like this? It can't be practice makes perfect.....ouch. Taken while on vacation with my family in Kuaui, Hawaii. This was a performace we watched and it was thrilling, and amazing. Image was shot at 1600 ISO....it was pretty dark in there. I am pleased with the minimal level of noise on the image.


Thanks for the votes and the ribbon...I appreicate it!!!

Awesome shot! The composition is superb and I love how sharp the shot is for being a night shot. :) The only possible improvement I can see would be if the highlights in the fire weren't so hot (no pun intended) so the flames themselves showed up. However, that being said, this exposure allowed you to get more light on the fire eater. Overall great shot! 8 from me.
